Sherwood-Graceville Neighbourhood Plan


Discuss impact of BCC Neighbourhood plan on integrated suburbs of Chelmer, Tennyson, Graceville, Sherwood, Corinda

What to do if Council records wrongly record a pre WWII house as built in the 1050s?

Submitted by Dreamer on Mon, 10/10/2016 - 13:38

Can anyone provide advice? I have concerns that a house built in 1916 located on the high side of Sherwood in a character street may be either demolished or removed from this character area. There is no development application or any other record of planned building works on the BCC website. Repeated calls to council have been less than helpful, with the same Town Planner repeatedly stating the house was built in the 1950s.

Grace St, Corinda: Bethesda redevelopment

Submitted by John Nightingale on Mon, 30/06/2014 - 10:05

 Apparently inadequate consultation with residents:

This redevelopment has complete demolition and replacement with 3 and 4 story buildings, an underground car park, covering most of the site.

One neighbour has met the CPRGroup Consultancy service for the developers (Uniting Church?), and suggests that some other neighbours have not been advised of this development. The application number for the development is AA003903877.

Hello everyone.
We are conducting an independent evaluation research on the effectiveness of Sherwood-Graceville Neighbourhood Plan community consultation (public participation).

Does anyone know whether the Alan Fletcher Research Station is up for tender?  Word is it is in the pipeline. 


This is now confirmed as proceeding as per Quest Newspaper article, copy below despite objections by the LNP state member Scott Emerson and the then Brisbane City Council headed by Campbell Newman via the Sherwood-Graceville Neighbourhood Plan.

New house built to site boundary, at or about 59 Watt St, Corinda

Submitted by John Nightingale on Wed, 31/08/2011 - 12:40

Could anyone tell me how a design for a new house could gain approval when the house abuts the southern boundary of the site?


This house is also a sore thumb in the streetscape, being of vastly greater bulk than any other house. This may be the future for the parts of Corinda excised from medium density development. Considering that this house may eventually be sold to a couple or single person (common demographic in the locality) it would appear to be a very poor use of the 800m, narrow but long, block.
